Abelton live Presonus playback issue

I am running abelton live to control DMXIS (2 midi tracks controlling scenes and a return track with the plug) and play a sample track for my bands live show. I also have a stereo recorded version of each song that I use for programming the lighting only.
I can play one song fully and when I play the next song it will work fine for about 20 seconds and then the audio is all garbled up. I was using this setup just fine with Presonus Studiolive 16RM and abelton live 10 lite. I upgraded to Abelton Live 10 standard and the Presonus studiolive 32RM.

Buffer size temporarily fixes this then the issue repeats. I’ve tried them all.
RAM and HIQ buttons don’t make a difference either.

When I remove the Presonus from the equation and just use the onboard sound card I don’t get the problem.

What sucks is it worked smoothly till I upgraded everything.
